After the establishment of the Islamic Emirate in Afghanistan, a female investor has decided to close down a driving training center for women that was established a year ago in Kabul. Nilab told Tolo News that no girl or a woman has visited the center during the past month despite the interest of more than thirty women who want to learn to drive.

"I face an unclear future. I aimed to learn to drive, to stand on my own two feet, and to not depend on anyone," Nilab said.
 
The Taliban, a regime known for following strict Islamic laws, declared that women are permitted to work and study only in accordance with Islamic laws. However, the Taliban regime has so far not allowed girls to attend secondary school.
